Limitations and weaknesses are the part of your experiment that are exactly what they are: limitations/weaknesses. You then address each of those limitations/weaknesses and explain what can be improved. What parts of the experiment are "limited," that is, are there any parts where there could be a source of error or are there any steps that limit the experiment? It's kind of hard to describe, but I can give a good example. Take a simple acid-base titration where you are trying to reach the equivalence point. You are looking for a light pink color if you are using a phenolphthalein indicator. But what's light pink? That's a weakness right there: the fact that you are not exactly sure of the exact shade of pink you are looking for. To address this, you could talk about how in future experiments you could have a strip of paper with the exact shade of pink that indicates the equivalence point so you know when to stop titrating and your color would be the same every time, instead of trying to guess what shade of pink you figured was the equivalence point in previous trials.

Hope this helps. :D
